Your proposal sounds a bit like Supervillainy: Astroengineering Global Warming only with the potential of generating some usable energy from the thing. Though, it is not clear to me how you would get energy generated in orbit to earth without irradiating a fairly significant area.
Actually, I was figured 2 possibilities for that:1) It's energy production in orbit that can be used for objects in orbit. If we ever intend to start using our solar system's resources, we'll need energy production in space2) If we build an elevator, we can use that as a conduit.
I really dig the supervillainy aspect of it! Do what we want, or we will blot out the sun over your country!
